Fund that are located in a Federally-declared disaster area, as 
determined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) (see

Innovation Fund is (a) a local educational agency (LEA) or (b) a

or (2) a consortium of schools. In the case of an eligible applicant 
that is a partnership, the extension of the application deadline date

(i.e., a nonprofit organization, an LEA, or a consortium of schools) 
are located in a Federally-declared disaster area, as determined by 
FEMA, and adversely affected by the severe storms, flooding, straight-
line winds, and tornadoes in Tennessee.
    An eligible applicant submitting an application on the Extended 
Deadline must provide a certification in its application that it meets 
the criteria for doing so and be prepared to provide appropriate 
supporting documentation, if requested. If such an eligible applicant 
is submitting its application electronically, the submission of the

meets the criteria for submitting an application on the Extended 
Deadline.
